The first regiment of my 'Classic' SYW/FIW is finished.
I had a blast painting them, more fun than should be allowed.
Paints used were 95% Humbrol Gloss, only the Yellow, Flesh and metal are acrylic. To get a good depth of colour I underpainted the figure in bright acrylics first.
I absolutely love them and I'm pretty much decided that all my FIW/SYW will be painted in the same way.
The armies will be Minden (cos they're just amazing sculpts by Richard Ansell) but I've a feeling that all my characters and single based figures will be Redoubt.
